On Saturday the 23rd May 2015 between 10am and 4pm, We will show the true Hunsbury community spirit and put on an amazing park event for all.

Alfie's Day at Hunsbury Park 2015 will be a fun day to raise awareness of 'DIPG Brain Tumours' while bringing the community together.

We will also be raising funds for The Brain Tumour Charity - Alfie's Journey Fund

The day will kick off with 'The Gold Mile' Sponsored Walk at 10am. The walk will take place around West Hunsbury Country Park, NN4 9RR, and there will be some special guests walking along with you.

The 'Gold Mile' walk will be a chance for everyone to get together and raise some much needed awareness of Paediatric Brain Tumours/Childhood Cancer.

As Gold is the official colour for the Childhood Cancer awareness ribbon, please feel free to wear gold or yellow or even fancy dress on the day in honour of the Warriors, Survivors and Angels of Childhood Cancer.

A joint grant made by Cllr Andre Gonzallez de Savage NCC & Cllr Brian Oldham NBC, from the Councillors empowerment fund allowed the Trust to purchase much needed hedge cutting equipment for our bondaries.

Both Andre & Brian have helped and supported us over the years, with financial grants and assisting with issues. We would very much like to thank them for their support.

We are absolutely delghted to annouce our successful grant application for £3000.00 from the Constance Travis Charitable Trust Fund. The funding will go towards grounds maintenance and tools. This will make so much difference to our site.
